Two of the players are former Eagles and one is from the Chargers.

The Carolina Panthers continued tidying up their roster with three waiver claims.

The only corresponding release to make room for the incoming players that I’ve seen so far is offensive tackle Matt Kaskey.

Rasul Douglas probably has the most name recognition in the group and fills the most obvious weaknesses on the Panthers right now at defensive back. Douglas spent three years with the Eagles, where he played 46 games, starting 18, and intercepted five passes. He has a path to quickly take on a significant role with the Panthers.

The other Eagle, Shareef Miller, was a fourth round pick just last year. He never found his footing with his hometown team and played just two snaps in his rookie season, both on special teams. He’ll try to get his career started in a pretty deep defensive end rotation.

Trenton Scott was left tackle Russell Okung’s backup with the Chargers, and he’ll try ot fill a similar role in Carolina. In two seasons with the Chargers, Scott appeared in 25 games, starting ten, including nine starts at left tackle in place of Okung last season.
